About Grace


Bio

Tutoring runs in the family. My father was a teacher almost all his life, and my senior sister was also a teacher for many years until she got a promotion. As for me, tutoring comes really easy especially when it has to do with one on one classes since that gives me the opportunity to interact better with my student.

I have a certificate for the Teaching of English As A Foreign Language to Adults, and during my course, we were equally had courses on teaching children.

In my home country...

Tutoring runs in the family. My father was a teacher almost all his life, and my senior sister was also a teacher for many years until she got a promotion. As for me, tutoring comes really easy especially when it has to do with one on one classes since that gives me the opportunity to interact better with my student.

I have a certificate for the Teaching of English As A Foreign Language to Adults, and during my course, we were equally had courses on teaching children.

In my home country Cameroon in Central Africa, I taught children between the ages of 7-17 in the school owned by the refinery where I was employed for close to 20 years.

As a Master of Arts Degree holder in Translation (French-English), and a Bachelor of Arts Degree holder in languages (English/French combined), I have a mastery of the two languages.

Tutoring comes easy. First and foremost as a mother of 3 (now grown children) I did a lot of home schooling for them and my neighbor's kids.
I try to make learning as interesting as possible, using visual aids, songs, rote memorization,games. I also make my students know that there is nothing they cannot do as long as they have a positive attitude, are determined and disciplined. I know how to make them love and look forward to learning something new everyday.

When I meet my students for the first time, I make them take a placement test (reading, writing, comprehension, dictation, spelling...) to determine their strong and weak areas.
I teach adults but I prefer children because they are more real and true to themselves.
